Meet and Greet, June 6th 2024


Recommended Posts

I have organized a Meet & Greet. I talked with Top Gun on Whitten Rd and told them this was a 1st meeting, to check if any interest in the West TN area. Top Gun suggested using their BBQ restaurant, then there is no room charge. If anyone wants to shoot that would be the individuals choice, i.e. not part of the meet & greet. The range closes at 8p, the restaurant begins to shut down about 7p.聽

Thursday, June 6th, 5:30 to 7pm. Come and go as the you please. Eat if you wish. I encourage you to purchase something from restaurant. If you want to stay later that's OK also.聽

Request you RSVP on this thread, therefore I will have a general idea how many are coming.

Location: Top Gun, 2770 Whitten Rd, Memphis TN 38133
Time: 5:30 to 7pm, Thursday, June 6, 2024
Cost: $none, 聽I encourage you to purchase something at the restaurant.

I'll be there.聽馃憤

Lots of us have been talking about this for several years. Here's your chance!聽馃槂

I'm not sure if I'll do any shooting. I'm much more interested in getting to know other TGO members and talking. But I might bring a few guns just for show and tell. If I have something you'd like to see or even shoot, just let me know.聽馃槈

He was banned before defending his actions in a transaction that went bad. He traveled to east TN to inspect some reloading equipment and supplies before buying. The seller set up a sale before he got there. Most that wasn't sold or the owner would be taking with him was junk. A lot of stuff that wasn't reloading related, western movies, magazines, books, kitchen sink. Dad talked to DLM after seeing what was offered. "I've seen it, I offered him $50 for everything. Figured I'd sit on it for a long time before getting my money back."

Being banned didn't stop dad from coming back in under another name. The boys down south wanted reloading supplies and DLM wouldn't make a trip. Dad took a parttime job for a bit. Rules in our retirement is we can't get extra income. So he lost his retirement for 3 months. Dad made a deal with DLM. He'd sell the supplies the boys wanted, collect payment then DLM would deliver. All supply prices were through DLM. We had a funeral in Grenada the coming weekend. Mules were arranged to get supplies farther south. Dad had sold close to $3,000 in supplies. He called DLM to make sure of the order. Found out someone didn't want to deal through dad. DLM was making a special trip to Jackson, MS the same weekend. Said he wouldn't sell enough to cover his trip.聽He was right, didn't have enough of what they wanted. About a quarter of what dad had sold for him. Dad had to return the money cheapest he could. Check 25 cents. stamp 45 cents 75 times. He barrowed that money from me and closed the checking account after emptying it.

DLM came online and said dad was under selling his supplies. He was banned without a chance to defend himself.

I checked out聽Range USA years ago while looking for local reloading supplies. They had some bullets but nothing else. The place was a bit more crowded than I liked and they didn't want my cast bullets with Alox. Range time was by the hour.

A trip to Range Masters was about half the mileage so I shot there 4 times. Space in lanes was great. I carried my granddaughter and a friend, could get all 3 of us at the bench to show them how the guns worked at the same time. Shoot as long as you like. My 5th trip they were closed.

My CCW permit class was in Southaven with shooting at Bullseye. It was small, dark with narrow lanes. I shot there twice before the class. The night of the class those walls seemed to get closer. Shoot as long as you like.

Range USA has a new store in Southaven. I went there when it first opened to check them out. Have checked them out a few times online since. Can have orders shipped to store.

The current Range USA(s) and the old one are not the same. The current brand was formerly ShootPointBlank, which is a multi state corporation. Imagine if Baskin-Robbin鈥檚 sold guns instead of ice cream.聽
